RE:FARM THE CITY
Refarm the City are open tools of software and hardware for “urban farmers”. These tools are used to promote and amplify the dialogue between urban humans, nature, applied sciences and local resources. Started 2008 in hangar.org (Barcelona), open tools have been spread around the planet. Cities like, São Paulo, New York, Paris, Barcelona or Buenos Aires were the stages of our research and applied technologies.
walks. discoursive city-walks with experts in science, arts and everyday life
The “protected” and well-known exhibition spaces are abandoned and the city as a whole is understood as a playing field - a place for projects, artistic interventions and urban new media arts. Discoursive city walks with experts in science, arts and everyday life” explores the venues and locations of the festival, as well as its surroundings with “walking as a method”.

Potential Terrorist
If a person enters the interaction area, a flashing white light spot appears on the upper body of the person. If this person stops, a short animation is projected on its body, which simulates a scan sequence. Upon completion of this scan sequence, there are two different storylines: The software (random) adjudges the person suspicious > "POTENTIAL TERRORIST" or it (random) declares the person as not suspicious > "PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE" is briefly projected onto the torso of the person and then disappears.
Artistic Bokeh Research
The format of “documentation” is an essential part when reflecting, presenting and structuring knowledge. It is seen as experimental component: footage of the video-documentation of 5uper.net and Coded Cultures (previous and current events) is processed with experimental and aesthetic parameters and presented in a long-term site-specific installation at the MuseumsQuartier Vienna.
Sensory Regulation: Electrodermal activity of a hare. A fairy tale
Bernd Kraeftner and Shared Inc. (Research Centre For Shared Incompetence) report on a little experiment which was conducted within the research project "Pillow Research  - hidden talents and multiple diagnoses" (FWF L528). It shows the mundane interaction with a patient who is in a vegetative state (a comatose state). It raises (political) issues of methods of diagnosing and how these methods change our understanding of the research topic at hand.
Luciolinae
A series of devices mounted on the windows of the eSeL RECEPTION pulse light in interlocking sequences. The devices seem to be communicating with one another: each individual speaks an endless stream of varying pulses, but when considered together, patterns of movement, synchronicity, and a kind of conversation arises, as though the devices are performing a continuous electronic commentary on some unseen, endlessly unfolding event.
